Nebraska Affiliate Foundation Quarter Horse Registry
Nebraska Affiliate of the Foundation Quarter Horse Registry
The NEAFQHR is celebrating its 25th year in 2024! We are a family-oriented organization whose purpose is to preserve, protect and perpetuate the working cow horse bloodlines of the Foundation Quarter Horse Registry. We offer a wide variety of classes for the whole family to enjoy. Among those offered are Pleasure, Reining, Trail, Ranch Riding and Speed events along with cattle classes: Cutting, Working Cow Horse and Roping. We have divisions for Professionals, Amateurs, Youth and 3-5 year old horses. We also offer “All-Breed” classes that are open to all horses, registered or not. NEAFQHR is nearly 100 members strong with members from 7 states and growing! We host 4 shows a year. Three of them are one day shows centrally located in Nebraska. The fourth is our big three day event at the Nebraska State Fair. This is our 13th year at the Nebraska State Fair with an average of over 400 entries.
More information on the following classes can be found in the rulebook at FQHR.NET.
The primary purpose of these classes is to evaluate the condition and physical characteristics of a working Foundation Quarter Horse. A Foundation Quarter Horse carries enough flesh and muscle to perform the work that is required of him. Conformation should be such that it lends itself to performing under saddle and putting in a good days work on the ranch.

3 to 5 YEAR OLD PROGRAM
The purpose of this program is to promote sound, better minded young horses while giving the owners of those horses a place to participate where they are not in competition with seasoned horses and a vehicle to promote breeding programs, etc. The 3-5 yr old program can be implemented in either the Open, Amateur or both divisions at the affiliate’s discretion. The points earned in this program will carry over to the Open/Amateur divisions as a horse moves out of this program into the Open and Amateur division.
